Re: filmscanners: Jenoptik scanner - quick response please?



Stay away from it.  I don't know anyone who was happy with it.  It 
claims 2400 dpi, but that's stretching it.  It is sold under a number of 
names, such as Artiscan here in Canada.  It has a parallel interface 
which means it is slow as molasses in the winter.

The SS4000 is several orders of magnitude better quality.  A medium 
priced flatbed would do better than the Jenoptik.  You do not want it, 
no matter what the price, unless you don't ever plan on printing your 
scans.

How's that for a quick response?
